Until this weekend, I thought that I knew who the father of James M. Akins was.But now I know that I don't.

I believe I found his stone in the Akard Cemetery in Polk Co. MO, just south of the town of Fair Play.The stone says
J. M. Akins born Oct. 3, 1873.Died Jan. 10, 1904.
In the row just west of his stone there was this stone--
James Akin died July 3, 1862 Aged 24y 5m 27d.This is obviously not his father--perhaps he is an uncle.
Have you found James with his parents in the 1880 census?I had looked in Dade and Cedar Co., but haven't looked in Polk. I plan to do that next.
My great Aunt was Neff Carns, wife of James Martin Akins.
